Would the AEM factory stuff for the F4 1000 work on the newer bikes? The price comes out to about the same as the BDS kit if ordering from Design Corse.

Unfortunately my 2017 B3 800 has the "older" one and if I'm going to spend the money to buy CNC parts, I may as well use the better version.

EDIT: Probably not going to work..was checking part numbers of the F4 and B3 and they dont match. I'll just order the BDS kit when it's time to upgrade.

Nice parts...
Got the bike back from the dealer today where the BDS sprocket carrier was mounted at the same time as a new chain kit (was missing one tool to be able to make it myself). The mount was direct replacement of the OEM sprocket carrier and top hat spacer (had one as well from BDS). No change in the stack length.

Here is the result:

While riding, I noticed it is smoother with the new chain kit and the BDS sprocket carrier (was in sport mode while usually riding in touring mode)…

Let's see what it gives on the long run, now...

Very similar if not the same exact unit on my f3 800. Not sure it made it any difference to performance or reliability, but based on your mileage your in a different category for sure.
They are pretty for sure!
